I would like to know how to activate the forgotten password in Umbraco backoffice, so that i can receive an email where i can find my password or is it just for show?.
Are you running the site on your local machine? I was only able to change password once I hosted it on an external server.
i m running the site on iis of a local machine so that my clients can test , still didn't host it , if it's just a problem with hosting that would be great but i m not so sure about it.
I am having the same poblem. I have forgotten the password, the site is on a online webhotel, but Umbraco is not responding. Is there a way to get into the site then when Umbraco is not responding. I have the .sdf database as a local copy!
have you added your SMTP settings to the web.config?
John, peace be upon those who follow guidance.
Refer to this for how to reset password via email.
@Lars, in case you have a copy of db try to modify the password via a tool that allows sql query and run the following query after changing the id.
New password: 3214789650 , tested on V8 8.0.1
UPDATE umbracoUser set userdisabled=0, userPassword='J94H0MGTTQ3Mx3HWHeLh3A==1CVHtebxZSrTlVdwc/xPfcxcr6Qqej3GvnT3wXrYvyE=' where id=-1
Thanks for your help. I am able to reset my password through the reset password. I configured my gmail as smtp server and need to turn on allow less secure apps in myaccount.google.
I suggest that you set an answer for your question which may help others later.
I have done what it says in the link, but with no luck.
The link "Forgot password" now shows, but when I enter e-mail and press the button, nothing happens.
These are my settings in Web.config:
<network host="smtp.unoeuro.com" port="587" userName="firstname.lastname@example.org" password="MyPassword" />
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Have you tried to use smtp4dev and use localhost application to receive the link ?
